So I'm going on a camping trip to Montana this summer, and I've got two main questions to start. Firearm is a Springfield XD. First, I'm flying there, and I need to contact the TSA about how to get approved to transport it. I'm sure there's some crazy hoops to jump through, but I also have to think I'm not the first person to ever want to transport my firearm with me. Advice? I'm sure it will have to be checked, probably have to be disassembled or at least locked, probably be an extra fee involved... Second, there's the matter of how best to carry once I'm there. I'll be doing a fair amount of hiking and such, and my regular hip holster seems like it would get annoying to carry on multiple all day treks, get hung on branches, "frighten the horses," etc. Maybe a shoulder harness, perhaps? If I can find one that won't bust my wallet... Thanks for any advice. Edit: Oh, and the places I've checked all say that, yes, Montana and NC have a reciprocal agreement with their CCW permits. Always glad to have double and triple checks, though.
